Well, this isn’t like Canon at all. After the big splash and months of build-up over the EOS R5’s launch and its 8K video capabilities, you’d expect they’d make a big deal about the launch of their new 8K EOS Cinema camera, but aside from a few sample clips, apparently not. Bear in mind, this is a camera that’s been more than five years in the making.
Canon Marketing Japan has released a new video with a lot of information about their new 8K cinema camera to their YouTube channel a couple of days before Christmas and told… well, pretty much nobody. And it’s not just a little teaser, either. This video is almost 12-minutes long featuring interviews with a number of Japanese camera operators and filmmakers.
